Guests visiting Frontierland can continue their adventures through the Wild West in the Golden Horseshoe. This restaurant is a massive theater hall, where daily shows entertain guests with country western song and dance. Guests seated on two levels can enjoy some fried comfort food and laugh along with the comedy show, or visit when the hall is quiet to take a break from the hustle and bustle of Frontierland.
MY RATING – ★★★☆☆
The Golden Horseshoe has a very limited menu, so it’s not an ideal restaurant for picky eaters or large families with different appetites! That being said, the (mostly fried) food is good and meals come with a choice of fruit or fries, and the prices are relatively cheap. But the reason to visit is not so much for the meals as it is for the dessert. The ice cream sundaes are ENOURMOUS, delicious, and give you a nice sugar boost after a long day. If you’re anywhere near Frontierland and want a break and something sweet, The Golden Horseshoe is the perfect stop.

The Golden Horseshoe was one of Walt’s favorite places in the park.
The hall’s first show, “Slue Foot Sue’s Horseshoe Revue” has a Guinness World Record as the longest running musical of all time, with 39,000 shows.
Walt Disney’s son-in-law directed a movie with the same title, in which Walt had a minor role.
